B's wage for 4 days: 3+5+7+9=24;
C's wage for 4 days: 1+(1+2)+(1+2+3)+(1+2+3+5)=21;

So, A>B>C.

By seeing language question seemed to be difficult. However, here is the solution.

A: 4+6+8+10

B: 3+5+7+9

C: 1+3+6+11

=> A>B>C

A = 4+6+8+10= \$28
B = 3+5+7+9 = \$24
C = 1+(1+2)+(1+2+3)+(1+2+3+5) = \$21
A > B > C
